Encampment in the Dark
September 1, 2022
A silent Sunday morning greeted residents of Encampment
A power outage that occurred at 6:15 a.m. was due to a pole catching fire, according to spokesman for Carbon Power and Light.
Power had to be turned off in order to replace the pole safely. Members of the community were without power until 10 a.m.
This is a good reminder to be prepared for sudden power outages, especially in our rural areas. Repairs and maintenance at this time of the year aren’t nearly as challenging as when winter has moved in with whiteouts, cold snaps and accidents.
Flashlights should be at the top of the list...
